When you are decorating your home, you can make the rooms feel more cozy and well-organized by hanging up beautiful, colorful artwork. Although you can buy decorative artwork from a home decorating store, you can make the artwork more personal by making it yourself using a few craft supplies. You do not need to be an artist to make artwork yourself. Paint a mosaic picture on canvas using only a few very basic crafting techniques.
Things You'll Need
- Acrylic paint
- Craft sponges
Pour three different colors of acrylic paint into three different bowls. Place the bowls onto a flat surface.
Apply paint onto one side of a shaped craft sponge using a paintbrush.
Press the painted side of the sponge straight down onto a canvas, then lift the sponge straight off to reveal a stamped shape on the canvas.
Repeat this process, applying a different color of paint onto the sponge. Stamp the second sponge stamp onto the canvas approximately 1/8 inch from the first stamp.
Repeat to cover the entire canvas with stamped mosaics. Allow the mosaic painting to dry for four hours before displaying it in your home.
